Maria Toorpakai Wazir received the 2016 US Squash President’s Cup Award during the 2016 Delaware Investments U.S. Open.

Pakistan squash star Maria Toorpakai Wazir has been appointed to the International Olympic Committee’s Women in Sport Commission in a role that will see her assist the IOC in the development and implementation of their women and sport policy.
Toorpakai, who hails from the highly conservative South Waziristan, is one of the most inspirational squash players of all time, whose remarkable journey to become a professional athlete saw her disguise herself as a boy in order to train, compete and attend school in a Taliban-controlled area of Pakistan – where girls rarely leave their homes and the idea of women competing in sport is regarded as un-Islamic.
Despite receiving death threats from the Taliban against her and her family, Toorpakai overcame almost universal hostility to forge a career as a professional squash player. The 26-year-old is now the highest-ranked female squash player in Pakistan.
Toorpakai is a strong advocate for equality and joins the Women in Sport Commission as part of a 70 per cent increase in female participation across the IOC Commissions since September 2013, with 38 per cent of the IOC Commissions taken up by women.
